Butter Crunch Cheesecake Bars

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Annacia

If you like Butterfingers candy and cheesecake this is for you! I have heard it said that this could use more sugar. I think it depends on just how sweet your sweet tooth is. Taste and add more if you think it would benefit. *PLEASE NOTE:There is a final filling ingredient that the Zaar computer doesn't like and keeps refusing to publish. This is: 6 small chocolate crispy peanut butter flavored candy bars (like Butterfinger), chopped into medium sized pieces.

This was really good. I added half a cup of dark brown sugar to the filling along with two more butterfingers. It came out perfect. Thank you.
